McCartney Approves of The Grey Album

I often wondered what he thought about 2004’s ‘The Grey Album’ that was done by Danger Mouse. I thought it was a pretty amazing album. Well in a recent interview, Paul McCartney said:

“I didn’t mind when something like that happened with The Grey Album. But the record company minded. They put up a fuss. But it was like, ‘Take it easy guys, it’s a tribute.’”

Damn, he makes me love him more and more.

Its seems that after the 2007 purchase of EMI by Terra Firma they have been losing big acts such as Radiohead, Rolling Stones and Paul McCartney.

ASCAP Awards McCartney & Coldplay

On October 14th, ASCAP had their London awards ceremony at the Grosvernor House Hotel in London.  They honored Paul McCartney (I refuse to put the “Sir” before his name) as the songwriter of the year for “All You Need Is Love”, “Come Together” and “Hello Goodbye”.  Song of the year went to Coldplay for “Viva La Vida” which I don’t really understand.  That song is typical Coldplay but it’s not as good as half the stuff they’ve written before.  In all 21 song awards were given out that night.  You can see it at all at ASCAP
